Try to FORMAT your devices If your using XP use the tutorials below:
\012How to partition and format the hard disk using the \012Windows XP Setup program\012\012 loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation');\012 You can use the Windows XP Setup program to \012partition and format the hard disk. To do this, use the following steps:\012Step 1: Partition the hard disk \012\012 loadTOCNode(3, 'moreinformation');\012 \012
  1. \011Insert the Windows XP CD into your CD\012 or DVD drive, or insert the first Windows XP Setup disk into the floppy\012 disk drive, and then restart the computer to start the Windows XP Setup\012 program.

    Note If you are using the Windows XP Setup \012disks, insert each additional disk when you are prompted, and then press\012 ENTER to continue after you insert each disk.
  2. \012
  3. \011If you \012are prompted, select any options that are required to start the computer\012 from the CD or DVD drive.
  4. \012
  5. \011If your hard disk \012controller requires a third-party original equipment manufacturer (OEM) \012driver, press F6 to specify the driver.\012\012For more information about how to use F6 to supply a third-party OEM \012device driver while the Windows Setup program is running, click the \012following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge \012Base:\012\012314859 \012 \012 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314859/\012 )\012 \012\012 Limited OEM driver support is available with F6 during Windows XP\012\011\011\011\011 Setup\012\012
  6. \012
  7. \011At the Welcome to Setup\012 page, press ENTER.\012

    Note If you are using the Setup disks (six bootable \012disks), the setup prompts you to insert the Windows XP CD. \012
  8. \012
  9. \011Press F8 to accept the Windows XP Licensing \012Agreement.
  10. \012
  11. \011If an existing Windows XP installation is \012detected, you are prompted to repair it. \012To bypass the repair, press ESC.\012
  12. \012
  13. \011All existing partitions and non-partitioned spaces \012are listed for each physical hard disk. \012Use the ARROW keys to select an existing partition, or create a new \012partition by selecting the non-partitioned space where you want to \012create a new partition. You can also press C to create a new partition \012using non-partitioned space. \012

    Note If you want to create a partition where one or more \012partitions already exist, you must first delete the existing partition \012or partitions, and then create the new partition.\012You can press D to delete an existing partition, and then press L (or \012press ENTER, and then press L if it is the System partition) to confirm \012that you want to delete the partition. \012Repeat this step for each existing partition that you want to include in\012 the new partition. When all the partitions are deleted, select the \012remaining non-partitioned space, and then press C to create the new \012partition.\012
  14. \012
  15. \011To create the partition with the maximum size, press \012ENTER.\012To specify the partition size, type the size in megabytes (MB) for the \012new partition, and then press ENTER.\012
  16. \012
  17. \011If you want to create additional partitions, repeat \012steps g. and h.
  18. \012
  19. \011To format the partition and install \012Windows XP, go to step 2.\012

    If you do not want to install Windows XP, press F3 two times to \012exit the Windows Setup program, and then do not follow the remaining \012steps in this article. \012

    To format the partition without installing Windows XP, use a \012different utility.\012
\012Step 2: Format the hard disk and install \012Windows XP\012\012 loadTOCNode(3, 'moreinformation');\012 \012
  1. \011Use the ARROW keys to select the \012partition where you want to install Windows XP, and then press ENTER.
  2. \012
  3. \011Select the format option that you want to use to format the \012partition. You can select from the following options: \012
    • Format the partition by using the NTFS file system \012(Quick)
    • \012
    • Format the partition by \012using the FAT file system (Quick)
    • \012
    • Format the partition by using the NTFS file system
    • \012
    • Format the partition by using the FAT file system
    • \012
    • Leave the current file system intact (no changes)
    • If\012 the selected partition is a new partition, the option to leave the \012current file system intact is not available.
    • \012
    • \011If the selected \012partition is larger than 32 gigabytes (GB), the FAT file system option \012is not available.
    • \012
    • \011If the selected partition is larger than 2 \012GB, the Windows Setup program uses the FAT32 file system (you must press\012 ENTER to confirm).
    • \012
    • \011If the partition is smaller than 2 GB, the\012 Windows Setup program uses the FAT16 file system.
    • \012
    • \011If you \012deleted and created a new System partition, but you are installing \012Windows XP on a different partition, you are prompted to select a file \012system for both the System and Startup partitions.
  4. \012
  5. \011Press ENTER.
  6. \012
  7. \011After the Windows Setup program\012 formats the partition, follow the instructions that appear on the \012screen to install Windows XP. After the Windows Setup program is \012finished and you have restarted the computer, you can use the Disk \012Management tools in Windows XP to create or format more partitions.\012\012 For additional information\012\011\011\011\011 about how to use the Windows XP Disk Management tools to partition\012 and format\012\011\011\011\011 your hard disk, click the following article number to view the \012article in the\012\011\011\011\011 Microsoft Knowledge Base: \012309000 \012 \012 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/309000/\012 )\012 \012\012 How to use Disk Management to configure basic disks in Windows XP\012\012

If you recently installed and any new program it could be a corrupt driver. Boot to safe mode by hitting F8 and delete it. If you didn't, you will have to remove drivers individually. Failing hardrive is another culprit.
